Strike A Pose

I was down on my knees in the grass looking for something to shoot, and this grasshopper went strolling by under my nose. He went a little past me, and climbed up a piece of grass so he could get a better look. He (or she) just sat there staring at me, so I shot a couple pictures of him.

He is staring at you.I can tell by the shine in his Althought, he's probably scared stiff knowing that he's one of the culprits that's been chewing up all of your beautiful autumn leaves.. #10903839

Pressed submit too fast.
Also, I like the way he stands out from the background and is so sharp.. fav #10903840
